The town of Tejina, which belongs to the municipality of San Cristóbal de La Laguna, is getting ready to welcome the Three Wise Men from the East. On Twelfth Night – 5 January, a night filled with magic –, the traditional mystery play telling their story will be staged once again, as it has in this town for the past 100 years.

The Three Wise Men Mystery Play is one of the oldest, most cherished Christmas plays in the Canary Islands. It is structured in five acts: Announcement of the Birth of Jesus, Adoration of the Shepherds, Arrival at Herod’s Palace, Adoration of the Magi and Flight into Egypt.
